The Forgotten Soldier

This installment is being started on Memorial Day, but may not be finished for posting today. In any case, I can’t say “Thank You” enough for anyone who has served in any capacity in the Armed Forces, especially thankful to those who gave everything to make it possible for me to write and speak freelyContinue reading “The Forgotten Soldier”

A Little Engine that Can

A pastor of a church I once attended said: “Christians can be so spiritually minded that they are of no earthly good, or so earthly minded that they are of no spiritual good.” He knew the problems that every Christian faces, when they live their convictions openly in the world. But have we become soContinue reading “A Little Engine that Can”

Use it to Lose it!

Have you ever played a musical instrument then stopped for whatever reason? Then you may relate to this message. At one point in my life, I played the guitar, banjo, and piano well enough to play and sing on stage publicly. I played at county fairs, church, weddings, and during intermission at the local auditorium.Continue reading “Use it to Lose it!”

Earn or Ask?

As was true last post, we’ve been busy at our house even through a “Stay at home” order from the state. I’ve installed new gutters on our house over the flower gardens that border the walls under the eaves. That took up three days of my time. An office building near my place was beingContinue reading “Earn or Ask?”

Big Brother Helps Us?

The time this week has gone by so fast, I hardly realized that it’s been four days since my last post. In the meantime, I’ve been busy at home doing repairs on the house, gardening with my wife, and listening to the government getting set to reopen the country. We’ve been waiting patiently for thisContinue reading “Big Brother Helps Us?”

Cookie Monster wants a Cookie

Have you ever wondered why some people will never listen to what you have to tell them, no matter how important it may be? No matter what you do, or what you say, nothing will get through to them. You don’t have the right credibility, (education). You don’t have enough money, (influence). You’re the wrongContinue reading “Cookie Monster wants a Cookie”

Why Bother to Learn?

Learning God’s Word seems pointless and boring to someone who walks entirely by the flesh. But only God’s Word provides the clues we need to know the difference between walking by God’s Spirit or walking by a counterfeit spirit. Religion has elevated the written Word to a level of reverence and worship that surpasses theContinue reading “Why Bother to Learn?”

Spiritual or Physical?

How can the difference between physical and spiritual life be made clear when so much of our physical life has been misappropriated to the spiritual? Largely as the result of occult influences in the church, or the adoption of occult teachings to describe the spiritual realm, modern Christians have learned to reject Biblical explanations andContinue reading “Spiritual or Physical?”

Pleasing Goats or Feeding Sheep?

Easter Sunday is over and the next church event to look forward to, is Pentecost. When the disciples and apostles of the first century experienced this period of time, it was the most exciting time in their lives. Jesus promised to send the comforter. They watched Him rise up into the clouds and heard theContinue reading “Pleasing Goats or Feeding Sheep?”

Happy Easter

In the last post, I talked about how Christians have rejected their Jewish roots for most of Christianity. It was a process that started very soon after the apostle Paul died in Rome. The signs of that split were evident in the book of Acts and in many of the Pauline Epistles. The split wasContinue reading “Happy Easter”
